Ok been slacking over the summer, so deceided it time for another build. Loving the JS body shape recently so thought I'd give it a go. This is my first body from scratch - found a slab of mahogany on the bay £17, thought it was a bit of a bargin. The guy said it was cheap because it was small? but was big enough for a jem

Bit of router work later

Then tried the angle grinder & some sandpaper to rough out the contours


Plenty more sanding to do

Thanks guys
Brilliant stuff Andy .
So you made this with a router and hand tools ?

AL.
Yeh Al, bought a sanding disk for the angle grinder yesterday - carves wood real fast!
Remember... don't fear the router.


went for an all access neck joint, why have to put up with a JS slab joint if you don't have to?
